Aurora Cannabis to roll out vapes, concentrates, edibles in Canada in December
On the one-year anniversary of consumer legalization in Canada, Aurora Cannabis announced plans for the roll-out of vapes, concentrates, and edibles when they are permitted for sale to consumers in December. The company has prioritized its resources to prepare for a successful initial launch that will support an ongoing replenishment strategy to help ensure consumers across Canada will have access to a diverse portfolio of high-quality derivative products they want to buy, the company said. To support the successful launch of vapes, concentrates, and edibles products, and to continue to ensure sufficient supply for domestic and international markets, Aurora has established production hubs in Eastern and Western Canada at Aurora River, Aurora Vie and at Aurora Sky. These centres are intended to provide centralized production, packaging, logistics and distribution capabilities. In total, they comprise more than 450,000 square feet and are strategically located to efficiently distribute Aurora's products to markets across the country. In addition, Aurora Air, a 20,000 square foot manufacturing facility near Aurora Sky at the Edmonton International Airport, will be home to several of the new production lines for edible products. Aurora's next generation products have been formulated to meet or exceed all regulatory requirements. All new cannabis product forms are subject to a legislated Health Canada 60-day review period that begins on October 17, 2019.
